After two dominating performances at home in games 3 and 4, the Wizards traveled to Boston for game 5. The Celtics flipped the script and handed Washington a blow out loss of their own. A slow start in the first quarter put the Wizards behind and they never really played themselves back into the game. The Celtics ran out to an early 16-4 lead and never looked back, leaving most of the fourth quarter as garbage time to rest the starters for game 6 in D.C.
